Oatmeal Stockyard Stout

Oatmeal Stockyard Stout

Ratebeer 3.33 84th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +3

This was another exclusive Trader Joe brew. Like all good stouts, the nose was full of dry roasted grains and coffee. The taste came through as expected with dry, bitter cocoa, roasted oatmeal and thin coffee. The black brew had ruby edges, minimal head retention and a medium mouthfeel that I thought was a little thin.

Aftertaste +1

The ending was astringently dry with a quick touch of bitter cocoa. Quite a pleasant experience.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

It was not mentioned on the bottle, but it was easily guessed due to the lack of warmth.

Value 0

This was a nice oatmeal stout, but I thought it was too dry and thin.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Still in Seattle and trying not to think about the possible history of my hotel room.

Overall 5/10

A decent oatmeal stout. It was very dry but still had a good dose of bitter chocolate and roasted oatmeal.
